9780144000609: No God in Sight

Fast paced and innovative, No God in Sight captures the seething multiplicity of Bombay through the first person accounts of an abortionist, a convert, a pregnant refugee, a gangster in hiding, a butcher, and an apathetic CEO, among others.
As the reader is hurtled from monologue to short story to anecdote, disparate lives collide in tantalizing ways. A family flees religious persecution in their village to take refuge in an urban slum; women walk the tightrope of free will and dormant violence; a father and son grant each other the relief of estrangement; and young men and women struggle to comprehend the consequences of sexual attraction.
Insightful, ironic, and scathingly honest, No God in Sight is a brilliant debut by a talented young writer."

From the Publisher:

"A bullet train of a novel, scintillating with bursts of energy and scathing humor as it streaks through the Mumbai landscape—the kind of book you will want to press on all your acquaintances and insist they read it." – Manil Suri, author of "The Death of Vishnu"

"Altaf Tyrewala’s novel is an amazing romp through Bombay. With rapid, whirlwind sketches, he builds a picture of the city that’s simultaneously anguished and light-hearted, a city teeming with characters who are escaping, dancing, butchering, begging, and of course, learning Urdu poetry. It’s an intensely alive book, and, in the growing repertoire of South Asian fiction, fresh and distinct." - Samrat Upadhyay, author of "The Royal Ghosts"

"I read this kinetic and propulsive novel in one sitting. It demands that kind of attention. Its portrait of of Mumbai is unlike anything I've read before, and Altaf Tyrewala is one of the most exciting new writers I have come across in years." - Ayelet Waldman, author of "Love and Other Impossible Pursuits"

"Like an engrossing and vivid Hindi movie, but without the melodrama, No God in Sight skillfully and with cinematic charm presents the loves and lives of Mumbai-wallahs. Altaf Tyrewala has written an intensely readable, darkly comic and honest novel that enthralls through the last page." – Amulya Malladi, author of "Song of the Cuckoo Bird"

About the Author:

Altaf Tyrewala lives in Bombay. He has worked as a cashier, a telemarketer, a clerk, and an instructional writer. This is his first novel.
